Western Frontiersman. Cleveland's first permanent settler, community leader and tavern keeper. Until April 1800 the Carter Family were the only white family in Cleveland. They built a log cabin on the east bank of the Cuyahoga River, whihc was used as an inn, with a garret, and as a jail. Cleveland's first wedding and first social dance took place in his home. He constructed the first tavern in the city, built the 30-ton schooner "The Zephyr" (a trading vessel), built the first frame house in Cleveland and constructed the first log warehouse in the city in 1810.
